    • Ensure that the configured user information complies with the security policy of the HyperMetro vStore pair's secondary end, and the selected role corresponds to a peer role at the HyperMetro vStore pair's secondary end and the two roles have the same permission.
    • If you fail to query the remote device's management IP address, manually enter it as prompted.
    • If a session has been established between the primary device and secondary device, their communication is available without entering the remote device's super administrator name and password. If no session is established, you need to manually enter the remote device's super administrator name and password to create a session.
